Academic Enrichment: Weeks of November 6 to November 13, 2017
We ended the official Kindergarten Lessons on telling time. We learned how to tell time to the minute. I taught them a cool trick. Instead of counting all 37 marks (for 37 after) just count by fives end at 35 and count from there. Some still felt comfortable counting all the minute marks. That’s OK, they’ll get it.
After the month long lessons on telling time we broke into everyone’s favorite thing: MONEY. We learned about the different and variety of each coin (penny 1 cent, nickel 5 cents, dime 10 cents, quarter 25 cents, 50 cent piece and the dollar coins). After we identified the coin we did start to learn how to count the change.
The kindergarten students can now count to ten in 13 different languages (English, Sign Language, Latin, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagalog, Hebrew, Korean, and Hungarian).
